Trash Solids On Ebay
Posted 20 April 2004 - 05:26 PM
I did get a reply from Goldfinger and she was vague and claimed she didn't know much about the solids but if the mermaid was headless then the bidders were "Bidding for spare parts."
Needless to say, I did not respond.

I just saw your Photo's of the Catfishies, they are just wonderful!! Can we call them Kittymaids?

Maybe the mermaid's head will appear on Ebay by itself one day . . . when the seller of the body finds it under the sofa while cleaning perhaps . . . .
Michaela - a VERY successful transplanting of the heads there!! They WOULD fetch a great price on Ebay (but not from me)!!
I reckon you should do some more!!

Love the blackfishmaid...incredible work. And...I'll bet you could fetch a really, really high price on eBay just with the picture(s)! It's toooo tempting...

These are all being sold by you know who! Can you tell me how the Picnic Basket has evolved, and any of the other solids which will soon meet their fate!
Appreciate very much if you would!
OOOps. Went to copy description relative to Picnic Basket......but it's gone! I suppose we are all ''honest human beings who can make mistakes........ ''
That was part of a quote in the singular attached to the Picnic Basket

We have no idea why the "solids" are selling .
Some of the reasons may be because they think the are "prototypes" but they are not. Some may think they are OK because they don't know any better. Some may need spare parts, and as we said before some of the solids are Ok.
A good way to compare is look at the Database under picnic for the basket.
The one on ebay is missing all it's contents.
In our humble opinion some of these solids were NOT FINISHED for what ever reason and put in the trash. Some one fished them out and found a market on ebay.
If we see Monique at convention we will ask her why she bought most of them.

The chip didn't bother me as much as all the missing stones. And the MINT.
I think we should buy all these "SOLIDS" instead of the castle and sit around glueing them back together .
Sell them for bigger bucks and call them RARE EXCLUSIVES sold only on Soildperfume.com
Designed , created and glued back together by artists and engineers whom were once friendly with EL.
(In the discription above the only words that folks that buy them will see are in capitals.)

True, what gets me is the "Description".... Holy Bulls!

EL isn't the only one having problems with the sale of "broken" unfinished items.
Ebay item 3289912471.

I bought a Jay Strongwater compact last year (or was it the year before) that was an unfinished prototype. The salamander was turquoise as it should be, but the background had different colors. The mirrors were missing.
Maybe, someone went dumpster diving? Don't tell me these people work for Strongwater or Lauder and helped themselves. Would hate to support that!

For instance, it took me 10 seconds to realize the Vanity is missing the Perfume Bottle

The Headless Mermaid - Again!
PLUS, we also have a rotted peach in the lot! This will never end...they just keep getting worse. Oh...the teddy with the broken arm is back also. All, of course, MINT!
